All Cats Go To Heaven #MewsicMovesMe


"We can never replace them. We can never repay them. But we can always remember. And today, that is what we are doing — we remember. Words cannot wipe away the tears or bring back those smiling faces. But if Americans just take the time to look into your eyes and tell you how much we thank you and how dearly we pray for you and how truly we love you, then hopefully you can find solace through your pain. And every time you see the sun rise over this blessed land please know your brave sons and daughters pushed away the night and delivered for us all that great and glorious dawn."

~ President Donald J. Trump, 5/29/17


I've been looking forward to this week's Mewsic Moves Me blog hop theme of songs about heaven or hell for a long time now because it gives me the opportunity to play my all-time favorite Conway song, I May Never Get to Heaven

Here's some trivia: This song was recorded by numerous artists, even Aretha Franklin, but ONLY Conway took it to #1...



One of my top 5 favorites from Conway's rock days...



Conway had a reputation for recording some of country music's sexiest songs. 
This one shows Loretta could turn up the sizzle too!



John Schneider may be best known as "Bo Duke" on The Dukes of Hazzard, but in my opinion he was also one of the greatest voices ever in country music...



A classic '80s country song I've always loved...



And in honor of Memorial Day...



We hope you enjoyed our choices this week!
Do you have a favorite?

It's pretty funny ... as a teenager I didn't like country music ... but then I went to the University of Kansas and I was educated on proper music ;)
When I got married to my ex-husband, our special dances were all off the country menu ...

Melissa,

First off, I love the Trump quote - so purrfect for remembering our fallen heroes! Next, do you have two blogs? I just came from JW Designs which is identical to your post. Please let me know if I goofed because I added to my the dance party. *blush* I sorta thought the content would've been something you might share. Anyhow, great song choices for this week's theme. all new2me tunes. Have a furtastic week and thanks for joining us on the dance floor, my friend!

We hope you all had a blessed Memorial Day. We are grateful for all those who have served and fought for our freedom.

Your music choices always match the theme so perfectly. You know, I somehow completely forgot that John Schneider was also a singer. His voice is incredible.

Mike Golch said...

Great tunes,thanks for sharing them.

Hi Melissa,
Loved your playlist with some great classic country! I remember Conway's Star-Spangled Heaven. I remember too back when Loretta Lynn was all the rage around the country. People adored her! She did have an awesome voice and a beautiful presence.

I didn't know Bo Duke was a singer! That's some cool trivia.
And I love the song by T. Graham Brown: I never heard of him back then. "Hell and High Water" is a great song and the saxophone is fabulous.

Thanks for a wonderful dose of Country.
Have a great week,

Michele at Angels Bark

"Star Spangled Heaven" was perfect for Memorial Day (and I could hear a Johnny Cash influence in this" but my fav was the 2nd Conway Twitty song because I thought he was somehow channeling Elvis in it. So I looked and - 1959! The sax in "Come Hell or High Water" was a bit unexpected, too. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
